The term e-mail forwarding describes an e-mail being forwarded from a receiving address towards a third-party address that's not mentioned as a receiver. For example, a client sends an e-mail from their private mailbox to and as far as they're concerned, this is actually the single recipient. When there is an active forwarding, the message could be forwarded to, for instance, although the customer in no way meant the message to be sent there and may not be aware about the existence of this mailbox. There are different purposes for applying such forwarding. For example, if you have many email addresses you'll be able to forward each of them to a sole mail box, which will make checking e-mails less complicated and allows you to get e-mails and respond quickly. The function can also be used in case a number of individuals should get a copy of an email message sent to a standard mail box.

E-mail Forwarding in Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all the hosting packages, will help you forward any e-mail inside the account to an alternative one effortlessly. This can be done either during the creation of a new email address or at any time later on in case you decide that you'll need this feature. During the process, you are able to consider if you need a backup of the email messages to be kept on the server. In this way, you will have a backup and you'll prevent the probability to lose a message if the forwarding is to an external address, which is temporarily unavailable. This option can be enabled and deactivated any time, though if you use emails for essential matters, it is better to use it, because no records of the email messages will be kept on the server if the option is not active. In case you decide that you do not need forwarding any more, it will take simply a click to deactivate it.

E-mail Forwarding in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server through us, you will need simply a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager part of your Hepsia Hosting Control Panel to forward the email addresses created on our system to a third-party e-mail address. Inside the same section you will additionally have the ability to observe how many of your mailboxes are forwarded and where the incoming e-mails are sent. It is easy to enable or disable a forwarding account at any moment and throughout the process you can also decide whether a backup copy of the emails needs to be kept in our system or not. Even if this option is not a must have, it is extremely handy since you will have a backup of the emails on our end in the event that something happens with the third-party mailbox. Even when they have only a momentary issue, you risk losing emails as when our server gets and forwards a message, nothing will be kept on our end if you haven’t selected a backup to be maintained.
